Question

An object in simple harmonic motion is oscillating about the
origin on the *x*-axis. At time *t* = 0 It is located
at *x =* 5 cm, and is moving to the left. If its maximum
oscillation amplitude *A* is 10 cm, what is the value of the
phase constant *ϕ*_{0}?

Answer #1

let's use the standard equation of simple harmonic motion

put t= 0

we get

given x(0) = 5

A=10

so

Now

We know that

Now given that at t= 0 v is -ve

That means

now solving these two equations

We get

i.e

An object undergoes simple harmonic motion along the x-axis with
a period of 0.5 s and an amplitude of 25 mm. Its position is x = 14
mm when t = 0 and it is heading in the -x-direction (negative). In
your logbook write an equation of motion with all the variables
identified and sketch a graph of position vs. time for the
oscillator. What is the initial phase? [Work in rotational
coordinates to 2 s.f. and enter nothing at...

A simple harmonic oscillator consists of a mass of 100g attached
to a constant spring is 10^4 dynas/cm. At time t=0, the mass is
about 3 cm from the equilibrium point and with an initial velocity
of 5cm/s, both in the positive direction.A dissipative force is now
added. Assume that you start moving from rest at the maximum
amplitude position, and after oscillating for 10 s, your maximum
amplitude is reduced to half of the initial value. Calculate:
